Requesting Photographic Coverage

The college photographer is available to photograph college events and individuals for print and online publications, marketing initiatives and publicity. Priority is given to assignments that have the greatest benefit to the college. There is no charge for the photographer’s time, but clients may incur costs for some products and services (e.g., CDs, DVDs, photo prints). If the photographer is unavailable, the office can recommend a freelance photographer; the client is responsible for contacting the freelance photographer and paying for his or her services. To request photographic coverage of an event, please complete the project-request form.

Requesting Portrait Sittings

Portrait sittings are scheduled on the third Wednesday of each month during the academic year from 1 to 4 p.m. and are booked in 15-minute increments. If several individuals in one department or unit are requesting portraits, we ask that they be grouped in one-hour blocks. There is no fee for this service. Each individual will receive a digital file at both 72 dpi (for Web) and 300 dpi (for print). Portrait sittings may be requested by completing the project-request form.

Requesting Stock and Archived Images

Many stock and archived images are available for use by the campus community. Digital files are free, but there is a small fee for prints. Please allow 72 hours for this service. To request a stock or archived image, complete the project-request form.

Personal Photography Policy

The campus photographer does not accept assignments of a personal nature. These include passport photos, family portraits and private events.

Requesting Video and Multimedia Presentations

The director of visual media is available to produce short (one- to three-minute) videos and multimedia presentations for department Web sites and other publicity purposes. There is no charge for this service. Assignments are accepted on a time-available basis, with priority given to those projects that have the greatest benefit to the college. Please allow at least six weeks from the time of the first meeting to delivery of the edited video. Begin the process by completing the project-request form.
